Fiddler Script Editor disable internet access

My enterprise AV is telling me each time Fiddler Script Editor starts that it's attempting to access the internet, and it denies those attempts. What are you doing that this program now needs internet access? I request that you give us a way to disable this behavior. I'm using Fiddler Script Editor in Windows 7 x64.

    Presumably, it's collecting telemetry on usage, and for crash reporting. If you've configured your firewall to deny access, what's the problem?

    You can use Fiddler to watch the traffic from the telemetry system. :)
